Attic Cleaning Service San Francisco, CA
We understand that many homeowners have never been to their attic or crawlspace. We provide experienced technicians that will conduct a full inspection and report of your attic space. Based on the report, we work together with the homeowner to prioritize what can be done to create a healthier, energy-efficient home.
- We look at the Insulation R-value or the insulation’s resistance to hot or cold air traveling through it. 95% of homes are under-insulated according to the Insulation Institute, so this is an important step to help save energy.
- We look for damages caused by rodents, and damage to air ducts, pipes and electrical wires.
- We will also inspect the HVAC system and the roof. This is a good time to look at the roof from the inside and to make sure there are no leaks or wood rot. We help our customers identify hazards like exposed electrical wires, asbestos and mold.
Once our technician is done presenting the overall report of their findings, they will show pictures and help the homeowner put together a plan with one mission in mind: to create a healthier, energy-efficient home.

Our Attic Cleaning Service Process:
Attic Insulation Removal: The first part of attic clean up is the removal of the old insulation. Our team will vacuum and clean old insulation, debris and will also pick up and dispose of old storage items. When this part is done the attic will be clean and therefore it will be possible to see any issue that was hidden under the insulation.
Air Sealing and Air Duct Replacement: Once the attic is fully insulated, the HVAC system in your home will function more efficiently. As a result, you’ll save money on your heating and cooling bills. If you want to increase your energy savings even further, air sealing and air duct replacement can help. This service helps minimize air leakage from the rooms in your house, which also helps preserve your HVAC systems.
Rodent Proofing: We want to make sure that rodents won’t be coming back to visit your attic. We use wire mesh and expanding foam to block out any potential rodents from returning. We offer a 1-year warranty to give you peace of mind that the rodents won’t return and cause damage. This process helps to make the attic more energy-efficient and together with the right insulation and air sealing, you can save more money than ever on energy bills each year.
Attic Sealing: We seal and caulk any gaps between the attic and the living space. This is an important step that is required by “title 24” (California building code) any time a contractor removes old insulation. When you combine all the holes that are present in an attic, it can be like opening a 2’ x 2’ window. That’s like wearing a coat in winter with holes in it! This step is essential to energy savings in the home.
Insulation Installation: The HVAC system that regulates your home’s interior climate largely relies on proper attic insulation. Once we are done with removing your old insulation we will work with you to tailor the right insulation material for your home. We do it based on your budget and the structure of your attic.
